He stands on the windswept, tear stained land

The Rain and the Storm

He stands on the windswept, tear stained land

As the tears of the Gods join his own in the sand

Lightning struck down from the bruised clouds above

On the day that he mourned for the loss of his love

Now the wind and the rain, and the ominent clouds may tear his flesh apart

But never would they be able to touch the pain of his love in his hearts

It hurt to remember, but even more to forget

All the fun that they'd had since the day they first met

An empty world filled with so much noise

Was enough to drown out the pain of past joys

Without her there should be no more laughter or joy

Just an eternal moment of silence for this lost little boy

But that's not how it works, the world doesn't end

Just because a man wishes when he loses his friend

They must always leave him, it's always the way

The time must come on some fateful day

So many goodbyes, too many to count

But it was she that held his respect in paramount

But now she was gone in the march of time

And the sun's light through the clouds as it began its climb

Seemed cruel and mocking, out of place

As if it had brightness of her smile to replace

The dark in his hearts and the cold in his soul

The strength to take place of that which was stole

He turned away from the sun that cracked the bruised clouds above

On the day that he mourned for the loss of his love
